Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

I'm not gonna lie, I was hoping for a brand new Normal/Ghost line. Not for Legends, but sometime in the series.

I don't care much for the Zoroark line, but they do look nice with this variant.

Might be a reference to Hisuian Arcanine or a new evolution to Growlithe. Mai is the ancestor of Marley whose signature Pokémon is Arcanine after all.

Referrring to my response here, it appears Mai's hair-clip is based on Zorua line which are confirmed Normal/Ghost types. Her motifs including a Stantler, Ursaring, a Zoroark-clip and a partner Pokémon as Munchlax, it is safe to claim she is specialized in Normal-type.

I like the design but yet another gen 5 Pokemon? Uhh.

I want to see some gen 3,4,6 or even 7 regional variants
Don't think we'll get any gen 4 variants in this game.

Animals can adapt within the same environment over years, but to Pokemon it seems like only Pokemon not originally found within a region can have a regional variant of said region.

That's so far been the case, but not really considering that I expect Scyther to get a regional variant that's Bug/Rock type.

At the moment I am suspecting there might not be a regional Scyther. Mainly due to the oddity with how Scyther evolves into a Pokemon of the same base stats. It'd be bit a odd for this game to introduce two Bug/Rock types in the same line with the same base stats so unless Kleavor is stronger I think they might just use the same form of Scyther. Its not impossible but for now I suspect this might just be a pure regional evolution (and imply at least in this region Scizor just doesn't exist yet)

Not sure if we will be eventually be seeing a Hisuian Zoroark serve as one of the Noble Pokemon (assuming the Wyrdeer Mai is looking after isn’t one). Looks like I found another potential member for my team.

I wonder if Zoroark will get a quest or sidequest involving it. I'd personally like it if a character was a confirmed Zoroark/Zorua, that'd be cool. I also wonder what the creepy dex entry will be for them. Ghost types often have the creepiest dex entries and the Zorua line already has some mildly disturbing dex entries.

I like the new variants. Also, really glad a non-Kanto region is getting love in those regional variants

Also glad with the gen 5 love, I admit when it first came out I never played it for reasons at the time, but as time went by I realized how much of my favourites are gen 5 Pokemon.

But by the time I decided to finally play the games, then it was already gen 7 and the copies were expensive, luckily my gf had them and got to experience them few years ago. They really are superb games and don't deserve the flak, heck Pokemon might've been a lot different if fans didn't originally **** on the games.

I digress,

Just, gen 5 Pokemon are pretty great and besides gen 1, have the most variety amongst the dex. So there's so much potential for regional variants with them and have been pleased that is indeed what they are doing.

Or in the case of Exeggutor and Zigzagoon the regional variants are the original forms. Meaning Exeggutor is originally from Alola and Zigzagoon is originally from Galar. These Pokémon changed once they left their native region and then these forms are the ones that populated the other regions.
